I've taken Alfuzosin and Avodart for BPH for several years. Recently, I had "Green Light" prostate surgery that has fixed my BPH problem. My Urologist wants the Avodart continued, but advised I can drop the Alfuzosin. I've known for a long time Alfuzosin has a pronounced effect on my blood pressure. After going off Alfuzosin, my blood pressure has increased 15-20 points. A typical BP is 160/100 without Alfuzosin. I'm not asking for medical advise here, I just want to know if there is a reason Alfuzoin shouldn't be used for BP control? I want to be armed with this information before asking my GP about it. I also take 20 mg of Lisinopril daily.
